Henry & Alicia Boese

We would like to ask for prayers and as we move to a new area away from our family and friends. Pray that the kids would adjust well and that we settle in quickly. Also prayers would be great for Arianna that she continues to do well and that her shunt continues to work. Also please pray that we could find a Church Family like WBC. We just want to thank everyone for the love and support over the last few years. We look forward to seeing everyone when we come back for visits. Visitors are always welcome. We have lots of room.
Feel free to message us for our new address. Thanks Again.

How God Answered Your Prayers.

A few weeks ago we asked you to pray for us during an intense season. Here's how God answered your prayers.

1. Hosting an internship program

Although this was a break in our regular family rhythms, the kids were troopers and managed well. Our interns, 3 from the Philippines and 1 from the U.S. enjoyed getting to know our kids too.

A surgery date has been set for July 4th for Malakai to have his lip and nose repaired. Please pray that everything would go well and Malakai would heal quickly. Please pray for us as well as we will be needing extra strength and patience in the next few weeks. Thank you for the support we have received already from so many people these past 3 months, we are grateful for you all!

Update from Ecuador!

Dear Wallenstein family,

The months of May and June have been months of beginning things and taking the initiative. Youth group began May 11 - We have begun by starting discipleship groups with the youth who were just baptized. Please pray that this would bear fruit in the youth’s lives and strong friendships would be created, both with each other and more importantly with their Savior!

Raul has begun teaching computer class again. As there are no computers just yet, he is teaching from a textbook, but we hope to get the computer lab up and running in the near future and the kids are excited!

Thank you for partnering with us in prayer and deeds. We are so grateful for our strong church family back home.
Jessenia and Raúl

Dave & Agnes Vandermolen

Thanks to all of you for your thoughts, prayers, and concerns re my recent heart surgeries. I do a lot of resting, take a lot of meds, go for blood tests, do very short walks, and slowly I am getting better. Please continue to pray for Agnes, the kids, and myself. I need patience, because I'd really like to start getting some work done, but I don't want to overdue it too quickly either. Pray that the kids will be able to have as enjoyable a summer as possible, and that Agnes will be able to do her work and not become overtired.

Trevor & Hannah - Missionaries

Thank you so much for your fervent prayers through these last few months. Trevor has been out of the hospital for almost 2 months now after being admitted for a mental health crisis in the beginning of February. Comparing life today to 2 months ago is almost night and day. Through meeting with different doctors and nurses, going to some recovery groups, and the support of our church, the transition home has been quite smooth so far.

I, Hannah, am starting a new leg of our adventure.  One of the greatest joys that I have as a minister on university campuses is walking alongside women and pointing them to Jesus.  I will be joining the team that serves the University of Waterloo, Wilfred Laurier University and Conestoga College. On top of meeting students on campus, I am excited to have the opportunity to use our home as a place to minister to students.

Thank you for praying for us as a family and for our ministry to help students discover Jesus!

Charlotte Martin - Missionary

This week I'll be in Spain helping with a mission trip debrief. Here's how you can join me in prayer:

1) Pray for the different components I will be leading - some prayer times, sharing times, an evaluation time, and an encouragement time.

2) I'll also be meeting one on one with a bunch of staff and students to do their "debrief interview." It's simply going over their answers to a series of questions that help them process their time on the mission trip. 

3) Lastly, pray that jet leg wouldn't get in the way of jumping right into things. And pray that even though I wasn't on the mission trip that I would have wisdom to know what the team needs to debrief and close the trip well.
